pootlers blog hop | spotted happy birthday | mini tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog and the Pootlers Blog Hop!

I have a Clean and Simple card to share today that is really easy to make and creates a big impact! That's right - make the product do the hard work, right?

Here is a teaser ~

Here is a quick tutorial on how I created my colours ~

  • Take the 1/2" circle punch and punch a circle from each of the 2015-2017 In Colors
  • Take your sponge daubers (or sponges if you prefer) and some Whisper White card stock and blend each of the inks to create an ombre effect
  • Punch out some darker and lighter shaded circles
  • Arrange with your card stock to produce a stunning effect of same colour circles with variations of shades

Here is my full card ~

To complete my card I die cut and stamped a sentiment. So there you have it, Clean & Simple and really quick and easy to produce with a cool result.
